In both situations, all court units, whether district, bankruptcy, probation or pretrial services, face a growing number of issues that are compounded when proceedings involve more than one plaintiff or defendant: initial appearances; pretrial conferences and discovery; pre-indictment; speedy trial tracking; motion practice; juror management; interpreters; courtroom logistics; exhibits; the media; even storage and office space. Take advantage of this program to master the challenges of adminstering and coodinating multi-party proceedings. See how other courts have dealt with these challenges. Explore the issues through trial phases, as this broad-based program presents effective practices to consider when developing a plan of action for the employees in your court.
